recited and accepted
A cadence In our souls imbued
Belonged to the streets and now? Oh sheet!
mask off, heels off ,caution offed.
darkness from within, hundred mistakes
per blink .
your phone pings, message from sneaky to
escaping solitude you claim, accountability
down the drain.
Normalize,legalize or was it dickmatized
you chanted energized.
Cupid? absent, nothing serious? present.
emotional damage? not yet.
Puff puff, music enough, you’re high and
Wink wink ,you like the lie,i sigh.once
more you’re enticed .
They said experience is the best teacher.no
past papers maam .
I’ll do it wrong i deter,abate the stokes its
like i’m damned.
The devil is in the details ,they wont tell the
hell they have been thru .
So much effort but you cant see the results
or were they mauled as an insult?
Scared browns staring at the rest, running
down her dreams ,heart a mess .
Does she has the guts to press on?scared
she’ll crumbled as soon as she stands.
She prays she’ll find a way to make it.
With a bag full of undisclosed desires she
faded to sleep .Her life unsteady.
Crawl, walk then run. its that way for you
and me at some point. You won’t escape.
